As seen in Table 5, ATC provides a better fit to the data compared to the LTC and BLTC methods ([R.sup.2] > 0.98).
Three methods of linear, bilinear, and Arrhenius temperature correction (LTC, BLTC, and ATC) were evaluated.

The Hartberg BLTC was opened last fall by the Maschinernring Hartbergerland (Hartberg-area Machine Ring), a cooperative of farmers originally organized to share farm machinery, such as tractors, and to trade labor.
The BLTC in Hartberg provides a staging and sales outlet for firewood, enabling local customers to have the peace of mind of knowing that they will have a readily available supply of suitable quality wood for their heating needs.
While at the Hartberg BLTC, Christian Metschina gave us a short presentation on the development of the facility and described how it fits within the overall cooperative.
At the time of our visit, the Hartberg facility was the newest BLTC, although another one was launched this past August.
The same year that the BLTC
hired Leon, they had also brought in a new trainer from Lausanne.
Experience and hard work paid off for BLTC
